Description MarjaE 2015-10-31 01:23:18 UTC
Trying to use Find and Replace in full screen causes serious problems, at least in Writer in OS X 10.11.

If I open a document in full screen, it starts off working alright. If I scroll to the top, I see the buttons to leave fullscreen. I can also see that there is a keyboard shortcut to  enter or leave fullscreen, but it is broken and deserves its own bug listing.

If I open find & replace, while editing a document in full screen, find & replace goes into fullscreen, and blocks any view of the underlying document. I might be able to use split view, but haven't figured that out.

If I close find & replace, while editing a document in full screen, it the full screen buttons do not return.

At this point the only way out of fullscreen is to save one's work and quit.

Confirming on LO 5022

This is a particularly cumbersome bug linked to LO's still incomplete support of Apple's fullscreen mode

Retested this bug.

Version: 5.3.0.0.alpha0+
Build ID: cbf36dd473fdc9e8d8b78c9e9317836a7cbbc6c7

When I am in fullscreen

    ✘ ⌘F
        expected: should open "find" bar
        currently: nothing

    ✘ alt⌘F
        expected: find & replace dialog
        curently: nothing

@Jay: any thoughts, how this should be behaving. is this shortcut related?
Comment 4 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2016-06-07 14:13:59 UTC
@Steve: On linux, the shortcuts for the find bar or dialog dont work in fullscreen mode.
Comment 5 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2016-06-08 11:25:20 UTC
So i tested some more an the find toolbar will appear the first time you enter fullscreen mode, but not consecutive times.

@maxim, @samuel: Any insight on why this isnt working consistently?

@ux-advise: Should the find toolbar appear in fullscreen mode?

Of course it has to. This ticket seems to be a bug on MacOS only as it works as expected under Windows. And Linux most likely as well.

Guess my comment 5 wasnt clear enough. This is not only a osx issue, it happens me on windows and linux.

Yes, the issue is relevant on Linux as well. But it's not the toolbar (ctrl+F) that doesn't show up but the dialog (ctrl+H). And I still think it should be, other dialogs such as for styles show up as well in fullscreen mode.

And to Windows. 

Would note that if the Find Bar is open and docked, or detached; or if the Find and Replace dialog is open--on shifting to Full Screen mode they both are not rendered. But then neither are other menus, toolbars or Sidebar decks (attached or floating).

So believe it is simply a "feature" of full screen mode--only context menu actions can be activated, and only those dialogs present there. No short-cuts, e.g. F5 or F11 have effect.

Maybe something specific to the mode should be added--to its context menus only--to launch specific dialogs, e.g. Find Bar, Find & Replace, Navigator, Styles & Formatting.

Yes the find & replace dialog doesnt work (bug 91797) but the toolbar also doesnt work in fullscreen with either of these steps.

1) Open Writer
2) View > Fullscreen
3) Press Ctrl+F top the toolbar and press Escape to close it
4) Press Escape to close fullscreen mode or press the fullscreen button
5) View > Fullscreen
6) Pressing Ctrl+F wont open the toolbar

OR

1) Open Writer
2) Press Ctrl+F to open the toolbar
3) View > Fullscreen
4) Toolbar disappears and pressing ctrl+F wont make it reappear

In my view, only dialogs should be accessible in full screen mode, as the mode intentionally disables toolbars, floating (non-modal) dialogs and the sidebar. To solve the issue of users pressing ctrl+f in fullscreen mode and it not working correctly, it should be coded into the Find toolbar command (vnd.sun.star.findbar:FocusToFindbar) to open the find & replace dialog if full screen mode is active.

I would believe this mode is intended to provide the maximum available space for users wanting to focus on their content and not have it taken up by various UI elements that are available in regular mode.

Sounds like a guideline. To meet it, ctrl+H has to work properly and ctrl+F must never show the toolbar.

On the other hand, why limit the options for users? It doesn't hurt anyone to show the quick find toolbar (as well as any other with shortcut) on demand.

We should likely update the help to also state this.

As the find toolbar is the only toolbar that has a shortcut to activate it, and a find toolbar appears in full screen mode in your favourite browser, i think it should be kept and made to work correctly, especially as find & replace is a non-modal dialog. But i think we should limit how full screen should work, like we limit print preview mode from no editing. :D

Adding the master of help to the CC list. Although, the question about toolbars in fullscreen mode feels to me still under debate.
